Richmond, Va., May 18.?The fea
ture of the first day's session of Un
American Cotton Manufacturers' As
sociation was a heated discussion this
afternoon between Arthur Marsh,
president of the New York Cotton Fx- !
change, and Lewis W. Parker, of
Greenville, S. C, chairman of the com
mittee on relations with cotton ex
changes. The occasion was the result
of practically an open rupture of the
strained relations which have existed
for some time between the associa
tion and the exchange. Mr. Parker's
assertion that the New York Co!ion
Exchange caters to speculators rather
than to the needs of legitimate bus!,
ness and that the prices of cotton
have been manipulated by members
of the exchange, to the great detri
ment of both spinners and producers,
was cheered to the echo by the con
vention. President Marsh warmly de
fended the exchange, pointing out that
it is an association of merchants Had

est of the merchants rather than in
that of the manufacturer or the pro
The convention decided with Mr.
Parker, adopting the report of the
committee unanimously and continu

THE COTTON MARKET.
Now high records have been estab
lished in tin- cotton market almost
daily of late and the July delivery
was finally forced above 16 cents fol
lowing a rtllher sharp setback at the
start of the week. Tin- early decline
was due lamely to an active liquidat
ing movement on the part of the load
ing bull interest, and the professional
element were also aggressive sellers
on the theory that a good reaction was
in order alter the practically uninter
rupted advance of the last two months.
Moreover, the Liverpool Cables at the
opening came lower than expected and
private advices from abroad were gen

continued favorable weather reports
from the South also served to accel

tat ions. Even during this period of de
pression however, there were plain
indications that the market was still
under strong control as values were
quick to rally whenever support was
given, and later a very brisk recov
ery occurred in the face of further
liquidation of July by the long ac
count. The offerlngu emanating from
this source were readily absorbed ow
ing to the eagerness of short sellers
to cover their outstanding commit
ments, the minor that about 25,000
bales will be shipped out of the local
stock causing u good deal of nerv

the (eitideated supply has been de
creasing very rapidly of late and is
now down to about 100,000 bales
against fully 220,000 bales a year ago.
The unmistakable firmness of the spot
situation was also a factor aiding in
the rise throughout the option list,
while the strength and activity of the
stock market and the prospects of a
revival in general trade combined to
Stimulate renewed aggressiveness on
the part of those operating for higher
prices. Moreover, there were further
complaints of dry weather in the east
ern and central parts of the bolt, al
though in the inain crop reports were
distinctly encouraging and not a few
people contend that the outlook is the
